In the heads up between Samuel Oberlin with 230,000 chips and Jerry Martin with 1,030,000 chips, the duel only lasted for three hands. In the first hand Oberlin doubled up when he turned his pocket Queens into a set. The second hand saw Martin lose even more chips to Oberlin. And the final hand went as follows. With both players seeing a flop of 4 J 5 Oberlin raises, Martin goes all-in and is instantly called by Oberlin who produces pocket Queens once again to Martin who turns over J 7. The turn and river are 8 A and that is how Samuel Oberlin became the first Main Event champion of the 2009 WSOPC Tournament season.
